Course Details

This qualification will develop your knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology to work on post-acute injury and pre-existing conditions, dealing with musculo-skeletal and para-tendon injuries.

You will develop the skills to conduct subjective and objective assessments, which will cover active, passive and resisted range of movements, detailed postural analysis, functional testing and special tests. You will also develop the skills to work safely and effectively on muscle and para-tendon injuries using a variety of soft tissue techniques and will be able to advise on treatment modalities to support soft tissue repair.

This qualification is different from the VCTC Level 3 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy since it qualifies you to work with injured clients. The Level 3 qualification is more concerned with pre- and post- event massage on “non-injured” tissue”.
